Mrs. Silfven

Hello Parents and Friends!

 

I have been teaching for 5 years. I am so happy to be part of such a wonderful community of educators at Scott Elementary. I graduated with a degree in Biology from The Master's College in California, and received my teaching license from Colorado Christian University. I have taught kindergarten, 2nd grade and this is my third year teaching 3rd grade. 

 

I am married and together we have 7 children. As a family, we love to play cards, watch superhero shows and movies, and mostly just spending time together. My passions are teaching, painting, crafts, music, and physical activity.

 

 I look forward to a great year with my students as they train to become superheros!! Thank you for allowing me to part of your student's life!

 

Please feel free to contact me at dsilfven@greeleyschools.org or at 970-348-2245.

    Homework

    Communication

    Every night it is expected that your child read for 20-30 minutes. While we don’t keep track of this, I highly encourage you to make this a nightly routine. 

    Additionally, if work that was not completed in the classroom needs to be sent home, you’ll be notified so it can be done at home. I will also send home work that is completed poorly that needs to be fixed.

    Please be in contact with me whenever you’d like thru one of the following ways:

    1. Class DOJO- this is great for quick messages or notes. Our code is https://www.classdojo.com/invite/?c=CZRGHCJ . There is an app for both Android and iPhone.


    2. Email - my email is dsilfven@greeleyschools.org. I check my email multiple times a day and will respond as quickly as possible. This is the best way to contact me.


    3. Phone - You can call the school - 970-348-2245. If I am teaching, I will be unable to answer and you’ll need to leave a voicemail. I will call you back at a better time in the day.

    4. Video - Meeting virtually instead of in person will be the best way to chat face-to-face this year. We will be doing all of our conferences this way, and can meet whenever you’d like. We can meet on Google Hangouts or ZOOM.

     

    This year has been full of challenges and changes. Thank you so much for your support and patience as we navigate it together. Thank you for trusting me to be your child’s teacher!
